There are always connections between business and government. It should be evident at this stage, but not everyone can make these connections. Sadly even those who pay attention can miss them as they slide by.

When the names running the corporations and the government seem to blur together...when the lobbyists and those being lobbied seem to blur together...

facebook now has four registered lobbyists, two Republicans and two Democrats, Tim Sparapani and Adam Conner. It spent $230,000 on lobbying in the first quarter. "At Facebook, we're committed to explaining how our service works; the important actions we take to protect the more than 500 million people who use our service; and the value of innovation to our economy," company spokesman Andrew Noyes said in a written statement. "This work occurs daily in Washington, at the state level, and with policymakers around the world."

I can't wait to see where this brings us. It's always interesting now-a-days.
